      The Microsoft® Windows® Distributed File Systems (DFS) Management Pack monitors the performance and health of the DFS service running on Windows® 2000 and later operating systems. In addition to monitoring the health of the DFS service the Management Pack can also help monitor the availability of DFS shares to clients through Client Side monitoring.

      By detecting, alerting on, and automatically responding to critical events and performance indicators, this Management Pack helps indicate, correct, and prevent possible DFS service and share outages. This Management Pack plays an important role in ensuring that your DFS infrastructure is working correctly and available.

      By using embedded expertise, this Management Pack highlights performance, health, and availability conditions that indicate problems. It can in some cases even identify issues before they become critical, thus providing you with a level of customer responsiveness that increases the overall availability and performance of your Windows Operating Systems. As a result, this Management Pack will reduce the cost of ownership by enabling proactive management and reducing resolution times for the issues identified.
